It never feels good to lose, but at least when you lose convincingly you know you had your hat handed to you by a better team and it's less tempting to get sucked into the "what if" mentality afterward. It's a bummer but after a little while you can (mostly) let it go and move on, and think about how to do better next year.

But when you blow a trip to the Super Bowl because of one dropped pass and a shanked easy field goal, when it feels like you could and should have won a squeaker-close game, that's when your heart breaks and the what-ifs never end... until you win it the very next year.
